Alumni on Top in NASCAR and SCCA Super Tour

A pair of Skip Barber graduates place inside the Top 4 in the NASCAR Cup dirt race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Austin Dillon kept his No. 3 Richard Childress Chevrolet towards the front of the field for most of the race and ended with a third-place finish, his best result this season. This year’s DAYTONA 500 winner, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., piloted the No. 47 JTG Daugherty Racing Chevrolet to a fourth-place result. With his win in the season opener at Daytona, Stenhouse is locked into the NASCAR Playoffs, whereas Dillon has some work to do, currently sitting 22nd in the current NASCAR Cup Series standings.

Last year’s NASCAR Cup Series Champion and Skip Barber grad Joey Logano took the victory in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Logano was unbeatable behind the wheel of the No. 66 ThorSport Racing Ford, sweeping the first two stages and leading a race-high of 138 of 150 scheduled laps. His victory at Bristol marks only his second career victory in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. Fellow Skip Barber alum Grant Enfinger scored his second Top-5 finish of the season, driving the No. 23 GMS Racing Chevrolet.

Skip Barber Instructor Mike Ogren swept the weekend in H Production class, showcasing his skill in wet and dry conditions. Fellow Skip Barber grad Chip Romer claimed three victories on the challenge Full Course, sweeping the weekend in Prototype 1 and winning in Formula Atlantic on Sunday. Skip Barber development drivers Will and Dean Lambros had strong performances in Spec Miata. Will, who competes for the Skip Barber Race Team in TC America, placed 13th in Saturday’s race and contended for the win on Sunday but an incident ended his race early. Dean finished 9th and 29th in both races but fought his way from the back of the pack, making 51 passes.
